“And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?”
King James Version (KJV)
9:11 The Pharisees said to his disciples, Why eateth your Master? - Thus they commonly ask our Lord, Why do thy disciples this? And his disciples, Why doth your Master?
Mt 9:11 When the Pharisees saw [it]. They were not at feast, but were on the watch. Why eateth your Master? etc. The strict Jews would not eat with Gentiles, and these classes were regarded by them on a level with the heathen (Ac 11:3 Ga 2:12).
